This generation of young people is more educated and connected with the world than their predecessors, and can be trusted to make educated choices with their votes. They should have the right to vote two years sooner once they turn 16.
The right to vote should be something that citizens obtain once they’re adults at age 18. If the voting age is going to be lowered, so should age of adulthood in the criminal justice system and the eligibility age for military service.
